After hearing the tale of the lost Pyramid of Pengqueen, brave adventurers set out to claim its magical treasures. Months of searching led the penguins to Pyramid of Pengqueen.
As soon as the penguins entered the pyramid, its gate slammed shut, sending a resounding echo down the darkened halls. The echo slowly faded away, and a new sound took its place… voice whispered from the darkness…
“Foolish penguinsss, I may be old, but I still have the powerrr to drag you down into my tomb for all eternityyy!”
The Mummy has stirred from its slumber, and now the penguins must move fast! Only the correct collection of magical objects will break the mummy’s curse!
Pyramid of Pengqueen is a game with asymmetrical goals. While one player as the Mummy tries to catch tomb raiders, the other players try to secure as many treasures as possible from the Pyramid.
The game is played with magnetic playing pieces on two sides of a vertical board, so the Mummy player cannot see the pieces of the tomb raiders. As the Mummy piece consists of two parts (one on each side of the board) the tomb raiders on the other hand know the movements of the Mummy.
They move their pieces via dice rolls and judging by the color of the tomb raiders treasure goal cards and their dice rolls, the Mummy player tries to deduce their position on the board, while they try to evade him.
When the Mummy moves over a tomb raider, he is “caught” by the Mummy magnet, thrown into the dungeon and loses some life points. The mummy wins when it earns a certain number of life points, while the tomb raiders have to secure a certain amount of treasures.
